Fiducia international (FDC YACHTS) is determined to continue its quality-oriented and innovative production motivation with the Aluna 87, the first yacht of the Aluna series. The hull production of the Aluna 87 will start this May. She has been developed with the cooperation of FDC Yachts, Red Yacht Design and Notilus Engineering teams, and the design process itself took 1 year. The exterior and interior design of the yacht was undertaken by Red Yacht Design, while hull and detail engineering was handled by Notilus Engineering and FDC Yachts. Aluna 87 is planned to be launched in the summer of 2023.
The most prominent feature of the Aluna 87 model is that she has a design and function approach that can be called “multi purpose”. While she has all the features of yachts of the same size, it can also function as a yacht support vessel with the ability to carry many toys on board. Thanks to her design approach, she meets every expectation of a 26m yacht without compromising on style.
Aluna 87 aims to offer a different perspective to the world yacht market, both as a yacht and as a support vessel, thanks to the fact that she is a complete yacht and the selection of toys she can carry.
Eyüp Özbelen from FDC Yachts interprets the process: "We aimed to create a series where our clients will feel like they are living on a much larger yacht with the volume, usage area, and other possibilities provided by Aluna. She has easy access to the sea, strong and comfortable in rough sea conditions. Economic - user-friendly and unique in her class in terms of the toy area and the volume of guest zone. Basically a Dream Boat. "
From the first sketches of the Aluna 87 to the final form, Red Yacht Design has worked carefully and precisely to combine the best aesthetic proportions with the most appropriate functions. In the project, which was also a significant challenge in terms of engineering, the design and engineering studies continued uninterruptedly.
Another unique feature of the Aluna 87 is that she can carry a tender up to 12 meters long on the main deck, an engineering challenge. The crane, with a lifting capacity of 5 tons, which is completely hidden below the deck, allows the use of a variety of toys. Having the crane below deck when not working becomes a unique feature for party and leisure mode. Along with the 12m tender, 2 jet skis and one 5m jet tender can be carried. The Aluna 87 also allows a 4-person "touch and go" helicopter to land, thanks to the large deck area. It is effortless to access Aluna wherever she cruises, with no more last-mile problems.
Aluna has a flexible and transformable structure inside as well as outside. Red's design director, Cana Gökhan, describes this project as a compact and multi-functional yacht, briefly likening it to a Swiss army knife. On the main deck of Aluna, where crew and guest circulation are entirely separated from each other, there is a full-beam lounge, a dining area for 8 people, and a wheelhouse at the fore. Her ceilings are higher than usual, providing a headspace of 2,3 m, and the entire superstructure is designed as a single space. The lounge area is perceived as more spacious than it actually is. The lower deck fore area is reserved for the crew, and the guest accommodation is the aft. The full-beam master suite with it's her/his bathrooms turns into a double guest cabin, separated by movable partition walls. In this way, Aluna welcomes 8 guests comfortably. The bathroom of one guest cabin can also be used as a day head for daily guests. There is a fully equipped kitchen and a crew mess at the foreside with a capacity of 4 crew.
